Incredible Not Yet Special Character

Why you are not restoring the use of special character as version 12 (I think)?

I need to use some special character from time to time.  You had that feature before, beside I asked for that several times.

When do you think you please your customers?

This is something we need badly.  I have upgrading to 2019, because Snagit is very good and I use it lot.  But is lack of a real support on these matters.

Your forum doesn't help you much.
4 yrs ago a similar question was asked and you basically said the same thing!

And of course as usual Joe Morgan helps the person the most.  No Techsmith reply.

I believe aimcorp is referring to the fact that for the last several versions we have been unable to enter special characters using <alt-num> sequences.  This used to be available in early versions, and is badly needed in this program.  Example: diameter symbol (Ø) using <alt>0216.

I see that it is possible to copy and paste the characters from Character Map so why not if the font supports it and also if it worked before? I don't have much call for the function in SnagIt, as I use it, but I do use it a lot in Excel and Word.
